Incredible tour! Our tour guide was awesome and made this period of time come to life! We were there during Christmas time - very crowded, so skip the line tickets with a tour guide is definitely the way to go!

FANTASTIC! This tour is a must to gain a grand understanding of the development of Venice, from the early days of evading the barbarians to present day. The guide was quite informative! She took us on a journey into the past surrounded by overwhelming art and architecture. She kept us involved and in awe of the history of these two beautiful buildings. I was very impressed with her knowledge. The skip the line portion of the ticket is a MUST. we were able to go right into the buildings with very little of a wait. She was ensured were into the Basilica before they shut off the lights at about 11:30, that way we could view the ceiling mosaics more clearly. We were more than pleased with our experience and this tour!

I would Definitely recommend this tourI took this tour in December 2917. Gina was our tour guide, voluptuous Italian woman with red hair who was the best tour guide I have ever had - and I've travelled a lot. She was intelligent, knowledgable and extremely funny.

Great tour and lovely tour guide but the viator representative was quite rude. When we asked where to wait we were ignored.

The tour guide was very enthusiastic and knowledge. They have some places to sit so you don’t have to stand the whole time. Definitely best to have skip the line.

Great experience in a short period of time. I'm sorry I don't remember our tour guide's name as this was early in lour trip. She was great and very funny. I would book this tour again. There is so much to know about Venice that only a guide will tell you.
